After Me Lucky Charms
Compression ratio is much lower. But I do love rotarys, brother has an rx8 and its a hoot. Still think its a girls car tho. Rx7s are much coolerDon't know why a rotary would burn that much more than a comparable piston engine. Mazda got most of the bugs worked out of that years ago.
Nortons Rotary went well and was actually pretty reliable in there road bikes and acheived some success on the track fwiw.rotory engines are notoriously unreliable. thats why mazda is the only company that uses one. and it's a gas hog for it's size. some inventions are not worth the effort. cool idea is about all it is.
See above,theres still plenty of Norton rotarys clocking up road miles.As for racing do you really think the makers of the rules aka Ducati would ever allow anything on the track that would make them look slow,anyone remember the bullshit they cried when the Britten showed up..which made anything Ducati had look like it was going backwards.So it looks like an expensive track day toy. It's not legal in any race class and the high price and ridiculous fuel mileage would make you not want to ride it on the street. Looks fun though!
